Best Buy tears down prices on Arlo Pro indoor/outdoor security cameras

Best Buy has ripped up its price sheets for two generations of its Arlo Pro wire-free indoor and outdoor home security cameras. The original Arlo Pro 720p HD video security cameras and second-generation Arlo Pro 2 1080 full HD cameras are two of the most feature-packed systems available for homeowners who want to add video security to their smart home configurations.

Arlo recently introduced a new line of security cameras, the Arlo Ultra with 4K HDR video. The Ultra series adds features such as automatic zooming and tracking, enhanced night vision, and an integrated spotlight in each camera. Because the Pro and Pro 2 security camera systems were already among the best systems we tested, however, you might not need to pay the extra premium prices for the Arlo Ultra systems.

Even without discounts the Arlo Pro and Pro 2 cameras and camera systems with base units cost less than Arlo Ultras. For example, a 2-camera Arlo Ultra system costs $600 while the same 2-camera system costs $450 for Arlo Pro 2 and $350 for Arlo Pro. With the Best Buy sale prices, however, you’ll save even more on Arlo Pro and Pro 2 security camera systems.

We’ve rounded up Best Buy’s deepest discounts on Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2 security cameras. If you’re ready to add video surveillance with both audio and motion detection to your home or adding on to an existing Arlo system, these seven deals help you save up to $200.

Arlo Pro 2 1080p Full HD Security Cameras

When Digital Trends reviewed the Arlo Pro 2  we called it “simply the best smart home security camera system you can buy.” The Pro 2 cameras capture up to 1080p full HD video with a 130-degree horizontal field of view. All Arlo indoor/outdoor cameras are weather resistant and connect to your home Wi-Fi network via the Arlo Base Station. The cameras have infrared night vision and integrated motion and audio detection. The Pro 2 enables defined geo-fenced motion ranges so you can ignore naturally noisy areas. The microphone used for detecting sounds with the Pro 2 is part of a two-way talk system so you can talk with visitors or intruders.

If the camera senses motion or sound, it sends an alert to your smartphone and begins to record video. Video clips are stored in the cloud and available for viewing for free for seven days. You can plug an external hard drive into a USB port on the Base Station for local storage.

Like the Arlo Pro systems, the Pro 2 works with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and the If-This-Then-That (IFTTT) protocol.

Arlo Pro 720p HD Security Cameras

The Arlo Pro security camera system is the predecessor to the Pro 2 line. Because of the price difference, the Pro series could easily be enough because of the comprehensive feature list and high quality. The major differences between the Pro and the Pro 2 are the Pro has 720p HD video instead of the Pro 2’s 1080p full HD, the range of view is 110-degrees with the Pro versus 130-degrees for the Pro 2, and the Pro series doesn’t support defined motion detection ranges.
